And The Poor Timing Award Goes To…

Dahlia Lithwick, the Supreme Court corespondent at Slate, for this opening paragraph from her April 27, 2004 column:

The Supreme Court is now regularly releasing audio transcripts of oral argument in “big” cases; that is, the cases for which the big news organizations request audio transcripts. I can’t see a downside to doing this for every case: It improves the press corps’ reporting, listeners are engaged, and the process hasn’t morphed the justices into nine lunatic Judge Lance Itos. Justice David Souter can still walk the D.C. streets unmolested, and the public can start to understand who these justices really are.
